ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 100.4% of the existing operating budget. It represents 70.4% of the total request ($15,360,320) for this program. In addition to the statewide adjustments cited above, the major reason for the increase from the existing operating budget is due to Act 856 of 1997, the Southern University Board of Supervisors is authorized to impose certain tuition and attendance fee amounts for nonresident students at all institutions in the Southern System. A $38,055 adjustment to fees and self-generated revenues is recommended for this program to reflect the following campuswide adjustments: an $8 increase in out-of-state undergraduate tuition from $4,364 to $4,372 (vs. the regional average of $5,600) for 42 students; and a $1 increase in out-of-state graduate tuition from $4,609 to $4,610 (vs. the regional average of $5,164) for 5 students.
